Popular Treatments

  • Traditional Braces

    Traditional braces are available in two high quality finishes — stainless steel and gold. With modern advances, the designs are smaller, sleeker and more comfortable than ever before. This standard solution is especially patient friendly because the only thing you have to keep up with is regular appointments and good oral hygiene. With traditional metal braces, you receive consistent adjustments that align with your overall treatment goals.

  • Ceramic Braces

    Clear ceramic braces are a popular alternative to traditional braces because they offer many of the same benefits with a less noticeable appearance. These braces provide similar strength and durability as metal braces, but the clear materials are nearly invisible. If esthetics are important, ceramic braces are an appealing choice. This type of treatment delivers the quick, effective results people love about metal braces with more inconspicuous designs.

  • Clear Aligners (Invisalign)

    Clear aligners help gradually straighten teeth with minimal disruptions to personal appearance. This discreet treatment method fits seamlessly into the modern lifestyle. Through in-person consultations, aligners are fine tuned to achieve the optimal level of comfort for each patient, and the results are progressive, so patients can watch their smile transform month to month. The aligners can also be easily removed for eating, drinking or flossing.
